I am surprized at how little the topic is broached in my "survival" text books or on forums. I mean, they say "build a shelter" but don't go into detail. WHat kind of knots should you use to lash limbs, how should you orient them, ect.

Back when I used to watch survivor I always found the shelter building part interesting. I wish I could find a source that dealt souly on that one topic, in detail.
